. some of the names you might have heard of. paul ryan, for instance. but there's also names i think are particularly interesting on this state level right now that have some real national potential appeal. particularly juan who is the san antonio mayor, he has been talked about as a potential national figure and has also potentially could be really elevated with a 2014 memory coming out and camilla harris, the attorney general out of california. she has some big aspirations people tell us and the democratic operatives with the eye on her noted she could be a potential eric holder, attorney general or a national political figure. >> well, you mentioned a look at the states and put my nominee in there. i have to mention it. i love when the old folks manage to stay relevant. i think this is a great story out of california. jerry brown. age 74. he's been in politics for like 50 years. his father was the governor in the '60s and he managed something incredible this year in california. ungovernable state, he went out and campaigned for a tax hike and the voters approved it and gave democrats

played out for politicians liking to vault themselves onto the national stage. >>> paul ryan, what do we expect from him in 2013? >> obviously not where he would want to be, back in the house of representatives, not in the west wing helping to lead the country, but he's not going to fall back into the shadows. he's already continued to prove himself on the fiscal cliff as a key negotiator as somebody who john boehner is talking to -- >> ashley judd? >> what would this list be without star-studded powder. ashley judd is one that a lot of democrats are hoping could run against senate minority leader for mitch mcconnell. she's a main power, a fund-raising machine and eighth-generation kentuckyian who could take on mcconnell in his own state. >> probably watching that state today. a business kentucky fan. >>> for all the 13 to watch, we're putting a link to the article on our website. log-on. that's there as well as a whole lot more. >>> thomas roberts is up next. thomas, good to see you, i see it's a gray suit day. >> i got the memo. >>> next hour getting your driving gear ready. the ping-p

states in an exchange he had with paul ryan back in 2010 said the last thing you want to do when the economy is struggling to sort of gain ground is to raise taxes and he said to cut spending. i don't agree with him necessarily on the spending although i would have done it more gradually. but the president of the united states made the case i thought rather convincingly you don't want to raise taxes because in his words it would kill jobs and hurt businesses. that president who made that argument then certainly seems to believe something pretty close to the opposite now. adam: doug, you get the last word. are we going off the cliff or not? >> we are going off the cliff. it is large, the budget control act of 2011. it is too late but i think future taxes, if we get spending under control, future taxes will be discounted lower because we'll have a better budget backdrop. adam: sounds like we're going to revisit this entire issue after the first of the year and when the new congress gets in place. steve hayes, jeffrey cleveland, doug cote tee, thanks for joining us on melissa francis's

what? >> he already has this covered, to boehner's great credit. he brought paul ryan in, eric cantor in, mccarthy in who might be the one -- >> the guy from california. >> yeah. and he brought them all in on this plan "b" and all on the negotiations. so he's covered there. he needs mcconnell. if he can get mcconnell and a couple senate republicans, then -- >> what about the body of 40 or so tea partiers who are holdouts. how does he reach them? the ones necessary for any kind of majority? >> he doesn't necessarily need them. if he can get senate republicans, then -- >> is that his game right now to go around his hard core right? >> it is. because then the hard core right isn't just blaming john boehner for all the troubles of the world. they're also -- >> can he allow the house of representatives to work its will with the minority of republicans? >> yes, he can. >> glen, is this your view? if we get a sol lux next week it's probably because a speaker allows a minority of republicans, maybe less than 100, to agree with some 120 democrats and out of that will be a deal because it came

described. it was called bowles-simpson. the president didn't support it. paul ryan didn't support it. it didn't have the kind of bipartisan consensus we needed. gotten us $4 in spending cuts for one dollar in revenue increase. bottom line we lack common purpose as a nation. both parties i believe are to be blamed. gregg, as we go to the end of the year and the christmas season i would hope we would have a common purpose, put partisanship aside and say how do we put the nation first? sadly, no one is doing that. gregg: it is interesting what doug just said, terry. i want you to react to that. he says both sides will get blamed. why is it the polls show only republicans really get the blame? >> well the president has the bully pulpit. he has the ability to go out and have campaign speeches and control the national debate in a way that the house republicans simply don't have. the president has the ability to shape the opinions that are being made about, and how the news is being covered. so he has a huge advantage and he has demonstrated time and again to demonstrate campaign tactics over t

discussed republicans have seeded cultural ground especially on college campuses. mitt romney and paul ryan rarely made an appearance and rarely made conservative ideas, free market ideas palatable to younger voters and talk about things, investing in a social security system that won't be around for them. i think we have allowed liberals or conservatives have allowed liberals to take the pop cultural game and make liberalism seem cool and hip and young people going along with the flow so that is one issue republicans have to realize. politics follows pop culture. stuart: you are running the republican party and all of a sudden the anointed one who runs the republican party. what would you do tomorrow morning to get the youth vote on your side? >> i would identify every libertarian, right been person in hollywood and have them talk about the ideas of freedom and liberty and entrepreneurship, ideas that resonate, when people talk about limited government and you can talk about conservative ideas in a manner in which they can understand, talk about how all the inventions like facebook an

paul ryan has an interest in doing it. the republicans should be sitting down and asking themselves why they let the democrats define the rules of debate on the fiscal cliff. the house should have passed a bill saying you cannot use money for medicare to finance obamacare. the plan to finance obamacare and the house should have passed a bill on that. or how about passing a bill that any reform of entitlements -- medicare and social security -- cannot involve taking away benefits from those on the system today and those about to go on the system. you can make good reforms to young people. they should have passed a tax simplification bill. host: next call comes from john in pennsylvania, republican line. caller: good morning. president eisenhower, the rate for the top taxpayers never went below 91%. now we cannot seem to get it up to 39%. in 2001, we had the largest budget surplus ever. 10 years later it would have the largest deficit ever. in 2001, we had $5 trillion in debt. we gained $10 trillion in debt in less than 10 years. $5 chilean was because of the bush tax cuts -- $5 trillion

medicare cuts during the campaign, mitt romney and paul ryan and all the republicans, who wanted to do the exact same thing he did, they jumped on his case for proposing cuts to medicare. so how can you negotiate with a party that isn't serious about its own caucus, and isn't capable of controlling them and doesn't have a serious plan for dealing with spending cuts on its own, because it's afraid to take the heat? nobody wants to cut spending. let's just admit that. but if we're going to do it, somebody's got to take the heat and the republicans have been the party advocating it for so long, so take the heat republicans and tell us exactly what you're going to do. are you going to cut mortgage interest deductions, charitable deductions, federal and state tax deductions? let us know where you're going to do to pay for this debt reduction that you want. >> the fact of the matter is, it's not going to get done with just spending cuts or increased taxes, it's going to have to be a combination of both, and right now the worst part of it is, and i think where we see the instability, especial

things like raising the debt ceiling. whoever is in power, if paul ryan was enacting his budget, we would be raising the debt ceiling right now. and he, too, would have a problem with this group of people. >> you know, there's a front-page piece in "the times" either yesterday -- or maybe today, i'm not sure. i lose track of my days at my age. >> what age is that? >> indicating that the power of the tea party within the house -- >> yeah. >> -- has been diminished somewhat because of the elections. do you agree with that? >> yes, but they still have enough numbers to affect the course of legislation. what happened with john boehner right before they departed where he couldn't get that plan "b" vote passed was amazing. to have a rebuke like that of the speaker of your own party over something that was relatively minor in scope. i mean, he could have had the grand deal. he went back and said, i need this for my own political benefit. we need to get rid of this issue that we're holding everything hostage to protect millionaires so that we can negotiate from a better vantage point. pleas

with entitlement reform that saves the program, doesn't lose them to the paul ryan budget approach but saves the program in a fiscally responsible way. now, that's the first thing we should agree on. both sides have to come together and be prepared to give. the second thing is it takes both sides. what speaker boehner proved to us last week is if you try to do so-called plan b in the republican caucus, no hope. but if you take a measure to the floor of the house and invite democratic and republican support for it, you can pass it. i believe you can, as we can in the senate. that's what needs to be done. we need to have some grassroots efforts in the house and the senate of senators from both sides of the aisle who are preparing to work on a bipartisan basis to solve this problem. to say we should have done this long ago is to overlook the obvious. until november 6, we didn't know who the president would be for this new -- new administration. and now we do. it would have been a much different debate, a different outcome if the american voters had not chosen president obama to be ree
